So, I made it. Four years after promising my best friend I'd make it over to her country and here I am. And let's be honest, how happy am I right now? Sometimes you just have to go ahead and go with your gut, no matter how sad you might be at leaving all your other favourite people, places, and activities behind at home. I've been settling into Northern Beach life, but have plenty of travel plans being mapped out at the moment for the coming months.
This is just a quick post of some sparkly scenes I've encountered in my first two weeks here. You can be sure there'll be plenty more posts, likely starting off with our four day trip to Melbourne and some of the delicious food I've been dining out on. I've been enjoying my sunshine-fuelled active lifestyle so much with plenty of beach runs, ocean and ocean pool swims, hiking, and general outdoor adventures. I'm jumping out of bed in the morning. And loving a good activity or adventure, including new ones like skateboarding, paddle boarding, and bikram yoga. Vitamin D guys, it's good for the soul. So here's some of that shiny stuff to start you off with…
This secluded beach was a bit of a moment for me after some bush land walking.
No editing or filtering is needed for the water out here. There are just so many shades of blue. This is on the Bondi to Coogee walk. One of many coastal walks I've already done here, and there's plenty more planned.
I'm seriously looking forward to the Australia Surf Open happening down the road in Manly over the next week or so. All taking place beachside with some skateboarding competitions thrown in, stalls, and rounding off with music from the likes of Vance Joy. All for free, and so near!
